Inner Hygiene: Constipation & the Pursuit of Health in Modern Society
James C. Whorton. Explores the history of western society’s concern for constipation as a serious threat to health & discusses the extraordinary variety of preventive & curative measures that have been developed to save people from the presumed toxic effects of intestinal irregularity. Examines the evolution of the belief that constipation is a disease brought on by the unnatural lifestyle of urban, industrial society. Particular attention is given to the early 20th cent., when people were driven to the frequent use of laxatives, enemas, mineral waters, bran cereals, yogurt, rectal dilation devices, electrotherapy, calisthenics, & various other remedies. Demonstrates that many of the constipation therapies of the 19th & 20th cent. are continuing into the 21st. Ill.
